The idea of this thread was inspired by the Now Playing thread and how often it changes. It got me thinking that with todays access to thousands of songs using iPods and USB drives that the art of a good Mix Tape is sort of dying. I thought it may be fun to have a post with the top songs you would pick to put on a CD if there was only enough room for 20 or so like there used to be.

I don't think these have to be songs greatly recorded, just the ones you would want to have the most. The kind that make you smile, want to knock somebodies teeth out, or just crank on the volume a bit.

I'm going to start in the post below, and don't feel pressured to fill all 20 at once, somebody else's list may remind or inspire you of a song you would definately want on there, and hopefully we can have some fun with this.

most of the stuff i already listen to is already mixed.some of the CDs are even split into two parts just like a real tape that would need to be flipped over! House Blend Series, DJ V, DJ Funk, Kaptain Cadillac, and the older DJ Bam Bam are some of the top choices. sample (http://www.thefreakbeat.com/post/109586131/the-freak-beat-mixtape-podcast-series-1-kaptain)of mr cadillac, free and legal to download for anyone that cares.
